Wondrous Witch Hat!

Warning!!! Picture overkill, I was camera happy with this one!

I’m so please with how this witch hat turned out!

I started with a hat from the dollar store and a child’s halloween skirt, also from the dollar store.

I used a seam ripper (scissors would work just as well) and separated the seam on the skirt.

Then (still using the seam ripper) I separated the orange tule from the rest of the skirt.

So Pretty!

I hot glued the orange tule to the brim of the hat. 
I also seperated the black tule and cut it into strips about 1 foot wide and folded them (or bunched them!) to about 3″ wide and hot glued them (I ended up with about 5 separate pieces), evenly spaced, around the brim of the hat.

With the rest of the material I cut it into 2″ strips and rolled the fabric into rosettes to attach to the brim of the hat.

I cut 1 1/2 inch strips of scrapbook paper in different designs and curled it with a pencil and attached to the hat with hot glue in several spots.

I also had some halloween chip board pieces that I picked up last year on clearance at Michaels. These came in handy for decorating the hat.

Here is the result of my camera happiness!

Halloween Treat Bag Toppers

 Halloween Treat Bag Toppers

My daughter and I were doing a little crafting over the weekend and we made some Halloween Bag Toppers. I didn’t take pics of the process because it’s pretty straight forward and the size of your bag topper depends on the size of your treat bag.

Here are the supplies that you need:

- Card Stock
- Scrapbook Paper
- Baggies
- Ink
- Stamps
- Double sided tape
- Any embellishments like glitter!
- Liquid glue for glitter
- CANDY!
 Halloween Treat Bag Toppers

My baggies were 4″ in width, I purchased them in the craft section of the dollar store.

I knew I wanted my topper to be 2″ in height so I cut my black cardstock down to 4″ x 4″. Score at 2″ and fold into a tent shape.

Then cut your scrapbook paper just slightly smaller than the cardstock and score this also in the centre, when you glue it to your cardstock there is a nice outer border.

The stamp that I had was roughly 2″ x 2″, I cut white cardstock to that size and them stamped my image on. I cut my black cardstock slightly larger as a backing for the white.

Position it on your topper. Fill your baggie with your favorite candy and then glue your topper to the baggie using double sided tape. You could also staple your topper to the baggie for a more secure fit.

Add any embellishments you may like & VOILA!

Super quick, super cute & super fun!
